Chillow Cuff is knit with silky smooth hand-dyed Valdani Perle Cotton. Twisted Bugle and seed beads are pre-strung onto the yarn and slipped as you knit. Chillow Cuff coordinates with Chillow Collar, May ‘23’s Lola’s Choice Kit!

Want to hear the best part? THERE ARE KITS IN 10 COLORS AVAILABLE HERE! Kits can make one Chillow Collar, one single-wrap Chillow Cuff, AND one double-wrap Chillow Cuff.

Chillow Cuff has two versions AND two lengths (single and double wrapped):

Version 1 (aka Chillaxing) is simpler. Beads are slipped in front of stitches to create an undulating effect, like smooth, calm waters.
Version 2 (aka Chasing) is a bit more challenging. I use my favorite beaded double-sided lace technique alternating with slipped beads.
